Welcome

Science is more fun when you share it.

Come look through our telescopes, listen in as a Nobel Prize winner talks about the puzzles that fascinate him or do experiments in your own classroom with a Yale student. This site shows you how.

If you’re a kid or teacher in greater New Haven, we’ve got something extra special in store for you. Many Yale science outreach programs work together so that students can get on a pathway that leads to success in high school, in college and in careers in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. We hope that you’ll make amazing discoveries of your own one day. And we hope you’ll share them here, so that a new generation can be inspired.
